5 Reasons why you should wear slippers

You head home from the office and it’s finally time to relax: you change into some sweat ants and comfy slippers. For many of you, this is the most cozy part of the day. But beyond the
obvious comfort benefits, why is it a good idea to wear slippers? Below, we’ve summed up the main benefits of slipper wearing for you.


Slippers keep cold feet warm

Looking forward to spending a cozy evening at home—but always struggling with cold feet? In cold temperatures, our bodies prioritize keeping our core warm…so, unfortunately for our hands and feet, this means that our extremities end up receiving less body heat. A great way
to keep our feet toasty and warm is with a soft pair of wool slippers. Remember that it’s important to choose the correct fit: if your slippers are too narrow, it can lead to poor circulation…which in turn, makes your feet colder. 

Slippers help with sweaty feet

No matter if it’s summer or winter, it’s never fun to deal with sweaty feet. When going barefoot in your house, you’re likely to cause unsightly marks on your tile or laminate floors; but when wearing shoes, sweat builds up and causes unpleasant odors. So, what’s the best
option? Slippers made of boiled wool! When there’s excess moisture on your feet, wool wicks it away and transports it towards the outside of the slipper. This means two great things: your feet will stay warm and dry at the same time.

Slippers keep your feet clean

Those of you who go barefoot or wear only socks at home know that it’s just a matter of time before your feet get dirty. This dirtiness is then tracked all around your home—imagine, for example, sitting next to someone on the couch when their feet have been tracking dirt around the house. No thanks! Instead, slip into some wool or cotton slippers; they’ll keep our feet nice and clean. Plus, these slippers can easily be cleaned in the washing machine.

We’re not at all implying that you don’t clean regularly! This happens to all of us when going barefoot at home. 😉


Slippers give you better grip

When wearing socks around the house, slipping and sliding is common—especially on the stairs or tile floors. All it takes is one slip to end up with a small accident, which is something we’d surely all like to avoid. By choosing a pair of slippers with an Anti-Slip Sole, you’ll have the stability and grip you need to stay safe.


Slippers are good for foot support and inserts

Many of us deal with abnormal foot positions, and have to wear orthopedic inserts. Especially if you spend a lot of time at home, it’s important to have the correct pair of slippers to house your inserts. How do you know which slippers to choose? That’s easy. Just make sure that they have enough space for your inserts, and that they offer a high level of comfort. Remember that the perfect slippers for orthopedic inserts are those with an interchangeable footbed, like our Giesswein Comfort models for both men and women.
